BORNHOLM`S DIAMOND (Ficus carica) Fig Tree

Reliably grows and bears fruit even under the climatic conditions of Central Europe. It is a clone of the Bornholm variety resulting from the selection of the Brown Turkey variety. Comes from the Swedish island of Bornholm, characterized by the increased resistance to moisture. This variety belongs to the Adriatic group of parthenocarpic varieties that do not need Blastophaga psenes to pollinate.

Vigour: moderate, broad crown, older trees reach a height of around 2.5 m
Blossom: parthenocarpic, forms fruits without pollination
Fruits: large, weight 50 to 60 g, green-red-brown in color, light red inside, aromatic and sweet
Harvest season: the first crop is smaller and begins from mid-July. The main harvest ripens from mid-August and is considerably larger.
Disease resistance: in our conditions, sensitivity to fungal diseases or pests is not known
Frost resistance: up to -18°C

We should not plant young fig plants directly outdoors. Only after three years in the container with frost-free wintering are the trees stable enough to withstand stronger frosts. A sheltered, sunny location in the garden must also be chosen for frost-hardy varieties, which sufficiently protects the tree from cold northern winds. The soil should be rich in nutrients and well drained. It is advisable to provide winter protection, especially for younger trees. The root area can be protected with a thick layer of mulch made of leaves or straw.
